I don't normally put recipes on here, because I am usually a strictly follow the recipe kind of girl. I am not good at throwing things together to make something delicious. But, I had seen a picture of a recipe for mozzarella stuffed chicken on Pinterest & thought it sounded good. Of course, it was one of those pins that led you to only the picture.....no recipe. :0( So, I thought I could kind of make it my own. The first time I made it, everyone (except Lily, who doesn't like anything) loved it! So, when I made it again, I decided to make pictures so I could share it on here.
This is what you need:
Boneless chicken breasts, plain breadcrumbs, basil leaves, garlic powder, mayo, and a block of mozzarella.
The first thing that you do it cut the chicken lengthwise so there is an opening for the cheese:
Sprinkle on the bay leaves & garlic powder, and lay down two slices of cheese:
Roll the chicken up so the cheese is tucked inside & place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. (I use foil because the cheese will leak out. This is easier to clean :) I still spray the foil though.)
Next, spread mayo onto the top & sides of the chicken, about a tablespoon full.
The next thing I did was sprinkle breadcrumbs over the top & pressed them in with my hand:
Cook these at 350* for 20 minutes or until done.
Ooey gooey goodness!
